Baby Lamb Chops with Minty Chimichurri Sauce

This week I am trying something new, here on CookWithChefEitan.com! I have actually never had lamb chops before. I was super excited to try them when I got them from Grow and Behold! We all know that mint goes really well with lamb so I figured, for my first time I had to go with a nice Minty Chimichuri Sauce. If you have also never tried them before, I definitely suggest buying some and topping them with the sauce!  I have been so looking forward to this ...

Chanukah Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

The weather is starting to get chilly which means Chanukah is around the corner! Besides the festive feel of the days, my favorite part of the holiday, as with most, is the special foods we make this time of the year.  I love consecutive days of yummy rich dairy meals of latkes with sour cream, doughnuts with cream filling, and for my family yummy butter cookies made with Breakstone’s Butter.   Cookies made with Breakstone’s Butter have a smoother texture than those made ...

French Toast Dippers with Maple Yogurt

Lets talk about breakfast. I love breakfast! I don't discriminate when it comes to the first meal of the day wether it is just a bowl of cereal, a nice potato hash, or french toast. I have actually posted a bunch of my favorite breakfast recipes here on CookWithChefEitan.com. I've done a Breakfast Potato Hash, Huevos Rancheros, and my Honey Appel Scones. Today I am adding another favorite of mine. These French Toast Dippers are crunchy on the outside and super ...

Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad

Thanksgiving is just four days away and I can't wait! I look forward every year to Thanksgiving. It's a time when both of the sides of my family get together. Every year, my brother yoni, my cousin Danny, and I sit in my uncles living room watching the Macy's day parade. We even celebrate an early Chanuka while the whole family is already together and exchange gifts. Its just a fun day full of family and food! This year I will be bringing this Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad. ...

Pumpkin Spice Buns

Today is my Blogaversary! That mean that I have been weekly food blogging, here on CookWithChefEitan.com, for a full year! Also known as 52 weeks! Which mean 52 posts with recipes, articles, and photography all done by me. Who thought when I started that a 14 year old would be able to run a weekly food blog while also juggling a dual curriculum school? Everyone I knew thought I was crazy. But a year later I have showed them all that I could do it! I have to thank again Melinda ...

Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread

Happy Birthday Yoni! It is my brother, Yoni's, birthday in just 5 days, on November 4th! I teamed up with California Gourmet to make the ultimate dessert for Yoni's birthday. My brother yoni is always full of energy, and I mean always. So my parents and I joke that he's like a monkey. So instead of a cake I made a Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread. I thought that i'd introduce you all to him with a short Q&A! Eitan: What your favorite food to eat? Yoni: I love cinnabons...

Top 5 Favorite Cookbooks (Fall 2016)

It's time that I show you all my current top five favorite cookbooks! I have been getting tons of cookbooks in the mail recently. It's basically like Chanukah every time the mail man drops a package off! Aside from checking out all the actually recipes, my favorite part is to look at all the amazing food photography.

Pico de Gallo Avocado Toast

This will totally up your picnic game! I don't like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I know, crazy! Basically, I love peanut butter. I love bread. And I like jelly. Just not together. Something about the three together, just isn't for me. So that leaves me with a challenge every time I need to bring a portable lunch anywhere. I can totally just go with the easy bagel and cream cheese but sometimes I like a change. Every Succot all the Modern Orthodox Jews to ...

Pan Seared Denver Steaks with Roasted Potatoes

  I was fortunate to get to try some amazing meat from Grow and Behold this holiday season! If you follow me on Instagram (@chefeitanbernath) or Snapchat (eitanbernath), then you saw all of meat I got to try. I got a bunch of chuck steaks, a french brisket, Denver steaks, and a bunch of baby lamb chops! I can't wait to share a delicious recipe with all of those soon. I'm thinking of doing something Indian with the lamb chops! I’m very excited for that. Today I am ...

Honey Apple Scones

So the chagim are right around the corner which means we will all be cooking up a storm in our kitchens, preparing delicious lunches and dinners. But I feel like we don’t pay attention much to our breakfast. The past Rosh Hashanahs I just have honey cake in the morning with a bowl of cereal. So I decided to step it up with my Honey Apple Scones. They are filled with honey and diced apple. It’s the perfect breakfast dish for the Chagim!
